- Companies can only increase their dividends regularly if earnings grow sufficiently.
- I like monitoring dividend increases for stocks on my watch list of dividend growth stocks, because I consider such stocks to be candidates for further analysis.
- This past week, 21 companies on my watch list announced dividend increases, including 2 of the stocks I hold in my portfolio.
To see the list of dividend growth stocks than announced dividend increases in the past week, please read this article at Seeking Alpha.
The list includes 3 stocks that announced double digit percentage increases. And 2 stocks in my DivGro portfolio announced dividend increases!
